Won't You Let Your Red Heart Show?

This CTV video montage (from Stephen Brunt of The Globe and Mail) has been praised by by people who are as musically nerdy as I am for including good music . It features "Red Heart" by Hey Rosetta! (a band from Newfoundland and who are pretty much awesome). Besides the song, the narrative is interesting and awaiting your interpretation/criticisms/other comments. Enjoy and I hope to discuss this (and CTV's other cheesy montage videos) with you all next week!

EDIT: Below is a clip of the actually broadcast of the mentioned video essay by Stephen Brunt. I think Brian William's (and the network's) framing of the video is also interesting. And watch as the camera zooms in closer and closer as Williams is talking. How lovely.

  1. I give it to the big television networks--they really do these mini-narratives well, all with the appropriately Aristotelian focus on plot and rising action (as befits a festival with its origins in ancient Greece). And cued to the right music.
